What Is Wordpress

What is Wordpress?

Wordpress is a free, simple and user friendly tool used to create your own website or blog.

More than one in four websites which you visit are likely to be powered by Wordpress. From a technical perspective, it is a content management system, written in PHP (scripting language in web programming), and combined with either a MySQL or a MariaDB database.

Features of Wordpress include a plugin architecture and a template system, referred to within WordPress as Themes. Advantage? You can manage the content of your own website easily without needing to know anything about programming!

Open a browser of your choice and type the URL of your website accompanied by the following suffix /wp-admin/ (Please see the attached screenshot for further clarification).

This will bring up the login page for the backend of your website. Enter your username and password and you’re good to go!
